Mr. Chuck Rhoads is the art teacher for Puckett High School. He has done so much for the students, his colleagues, as well as the community. He created a garden with fountains and art figures for our students to be able to go outside and read or just enjoy the view. He strives to make sure that every student reaches his or her potential. He is driven by his vision and there is no doubt this man is the recipient of this award.
The National Art Education Association has named Charles “Chuck” Rhoads the 2019 Mississippi Art Educator. This award honors an outstanding member from each state or province association whose service and contribution to art education merits recognition and acclaim. The award was presented at the NAEA National Convention in Boston, MA, March 14-16, 2019.
NAEA President Kim Huyler Defibaugh states, "This award is being given to recognize excellence in professional accomplishment and service by a dedicated art educator. Charles Rhoads exemplifies the highly qualified art educators active in education today: leaders, teachers, students, scholars, and advocates who give their best to their students and the profession."
Congratulations Mr. Rhoads!
